When I did that, I noticed the few areas where it left very small specs at the edges or areas I messed up. I then made sure to hit those later with the pressure washer. I have all my cars paint corrected so I am very careful about using mits or rubbing the paint. Was neat peeling it off in one sheet. Could see all the bugs and tar.

I left it on for 4 track events. I had one Friday and Sat, and then about 2 weeks later another Friday and Sat event. I dont drive the car during the week so I left it on. Didnt hurt a bit. Now, the car was garaged the entire time and not exposed to sun. The stuff is latex and water based, but I dont know about the long sun exposure.

You are definitely right. Never use blue painters tape again. Best of all the entire reason I got this stuff was because I did track days and I wanted to have photos of me on the track in my cars so I could frame them for the office. The blue tape numbers and bumper looked hideous. Not only does this stuff go on for the most part clear or slightly matte finish, it removes easy and takes almost no time to apply.
Opth - I just used it for 7 days straight and 4 track days. This stuff is everything you say it is and more. I actually had rain during the week (luckily not on track days) and this stuff stays on. You simply can't beat the price as well vs. 3M paint defender or Plasti-dip, both of which cost a fortune in comparison.
